In 2008 I was invited to contribute a track for the third Cassette Culture Compilation ( www.cassetteculture.net) that was being curated by dAS of Big City Orchestra. I donât know what happened but that compilation never came out.
I had submitted a track that I originally recorded in 1997 and then remixed, edited and added to in 2008. This track was originally called âNon Attack Suiteâ, and was a multi track guitar piece that I had used two, four track open reel recorders to make. They were separate machines so I recorded the tracks one by one and then synched up the two decks as good as I could and then mixed the results. The guitars were played by turning the tuning pegs randomly and I also used different speeds on the four track machine as I taped it.
In 2008, I took those existing tracks and recorded them to my digital 8 track. I overlapped, added effects and generally faded in parts of them from the original recordings.
This piece when finished was called âAction At A Distanceâ referring not only to the making of the piece but also the scientific physics paradox of non locality.
